What was this high-concept stationery "goods" web store?

Sometime in the past few weeks I saw a web store selling a variety of products with dubious uses. In particular, I remember the item that looks like a classic rubber eraser, but is actually a crayon. Now I want to show it to someone and I can't find it.

They also had "single-use" erasers (i.e. teeny-tiny versions of the classic eraser shape), a variety of paperclips in fun shapes, and other stuff that I don't remember now. Most of it seemed to be related to writing: pencils, erasers, paper, and so on.

Most items were clearly not meant to be practical goods. I thought it had the vibe of an art project more than a cheap novelty shop.

Any internet search that includes "eraser" and "crayon" only seems to turn up a billion crayon-erasing items, so I'm hoping someone else here has also seen it and can recognize it from my description.

Those are so fun!

Since it's sold out and the joke is over, what shape do the Grown-Up Grow Capsules become?

Response by poster: It was definitely Wask. Thank you all!

I can't believe I forgot about the Think Twice Dice. That's probably how I ran across the site in the first place.
